AirShow 2007 

On Sept 28 2007 I attended the rehearsal of the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends at Rickenbacker Intl Airport in Columbus Ohio. The following are photos were taken with a 5mp camera using a 200mm lens, cleaned up a bit and cropped into 4x6 150dpi postcards using photoshop.
Over the years I have taken many photos of Mustangs, so I have concentrated more on the Legends this time, along with a few old favorites, well it was a Mustang reunion.
